Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have to fear for the Premier League record. The new English champions did not go beyond a 1: 1 (1-0) win against FC Burnley on Saturday and therefore need three wins from the remaining three games for the new record. The team of the German coach has 93 points after the 35th matchday, Pep Guardiolas Manchester City came to 100 points in 2018. It was Liverpool’s first draw at Anfield this season after 17 home wins this season.
The hosts, who dominated over long distances, deservedly took the lead with a header from Andrew Robertson (34th minute). However, the Klopp eleven subsequently missed expanding their lead. After the break, Jay Rodriguez used one of the few guest counterattacks to make it 1-1 (69th). In the final phase, Burnley almost scored the winning goal through Johann Berg Gudmundsson, but his shot hit the crossbar (87 ‘).

And Oliver McBurnie (33.) met for the newcomer, who can hope for the Europa League in sixth.
In contrast, the dethroned champion Man City is no longer arithmetic and athletic participation in the Champions League. Coach Pep Guardiolas second place went 5-0 (2-0) from Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday night – Raheem Sterling scored three goals alone.
